The Banca Commerciale Italiana is located on 1 William Street, New York, NY 10004 and is situated on South William Street and Hanover Square. Completed in 1907, the building stands at 12 floors tall. Although an older building, 2 Washington Street has undergone various capital improvement plans over the course of its life. The building stands in close proximity to the red MTA subway line as well as the Staten Island ferry. Hundreds of different restaurants also pepper the surrounding neighborhood. The edifice’s proximity to the other office buildings that surround the neighborhood make this space ideal for an organization needing closeness to partner firms or clients. As a result, such excellent placement adds a significant amount of value for the building’s tenants. The building was originally built for J & W Seligman, an investment bank. In 1928, the building was acquired by Lehman Brothers, another investment bank, which remained headquartered there until 1980. The building is presently owned by Intesa Sanpaolo, Italy’s largest bank. In 1996, the building was designated as a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.
